Big Dreams, Big Projects, and a Big Thank You - Our 75th Anniversary Video

Creating a video can be as simple as asking a friend or grabbing a tripod and picking up your smartphone. 

Or it can involve a dedicated group of professionals, the generosity of participants, and support from your community.

We're thrilled with our 75th anniversary video, and we have many people to thank. 

Thank you to scholarship recipients and your families and students, for welcoming us into your homes and studios, and for working with us to create this video:

And a big thank you to the people who put these seven stories together and set them in motion and sound — the people behind the scenes, who have made magic:

  • Jeff Fish (“Fish”) and Cathy Brown, Filet Production Services. Your skills and commitment show in every second of the video.
  • Mark Cyr, CX Productions, who did a great job of re-scoring bits of the music track to our needs. From Fish: “Trust me, you haven’t even noticed the detail he put into the track overall. It’s a beautiful thing.”

Thank you all. And thank you to everyone who has supported the Talent Trust these past 75 years. We couldn't do it without you.
